WHAT WE THOUGHT
“The Clone Wars” ends so strong that it almost makes me resent “Rebels”. But, “Rebels” is just as awesome as the last few episodes of “The Clone Wars”. It’s an embarrassment of riches for Star Wars fans, as we’re finally getting the logical back story that we’ve been missing. We see how Force Ghosts happen, Yoda gets to do more and we find out that Order 66 wasn’t that well created. Plus, Rex and the clones keep coming across as the biggest badasses in the galaxy. Why did it have to end?
The Lost Missions provides more insight into the Prequel Era than the last two films. If anything, Lucas should be kissing the ass if this series for helping to flesh out concepts he didn’t convey onscreen. While some might say that it’s splitting hairs, it helps to make the world work. During the Holidays, I’m going to attempt an epic rewatch with the Clone Wars placed in direct sync with the Prequels to see if it makes for a better overall experience.
The Blu-Ray comes with unfinished story reels and a documentary as the special features. The A/V Quality is incredible for this release. The 1080p transfer is stunning. Plus, the DTS-HD 5.1 master audio track nearly destroyed my subwoofer with its sonic power. In the end, I’d recommend a purchase.
